Two Odd Ones Out 1

This quiz lists things you'd find in a hospital - which two are the odd ones out?

Two Odd Ones Out 1

Find the two odd ones out that don't match with the others.

In the 11-plus verbal reasoning questions that follow, three words are related, and two words do not belong with the others. Find the two words that do NOT go with these three and choose the correct button from the four choices available.

The easiest way to do these quizzes is to look at the first word, and then compare the second. If they seem to go together, look at the third and compare it with the first two. If it doesn't match, go to the next word and compare it.

By being methodical, you can work your way through this series of quizzes very easily. An example has been done to help you, so make sure to read it through carefully. This ensures that you have a firm grasp of what is required. Good luck!

flag white
red white
white pole
flag pole
Answer: flag pole is the correct answer because the other three words are all colours, and flag and pole are not.
  1. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    England, French, Icelandic, Germany, Russian
    England, Germany is the correct answer because the other three words are all languages, or nationalities, and England and Germany are countries
  2. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    car, ride, drive, bus, lorry
    drive, ride is the correct answer because the other three words are all types of vehicle, and drive and ride are things we might do in them
  3. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    scalpel, surgeon, stethoscope, nurse, thermometer
    surgeon, nurse is the correct answer because the other three words are all things a medical professional might use, and surgeon and nurse are professions or jobs
  4. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    corn, farm, wheat, potatoes, cow
    farm, cow is the correct answer because the other three words are all crops that are grown on a farm, and farm and cow are not
  5. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    scarf, knot, necktie, hat, wear
    knot, wear is the correct answer because the other three words are all items of clothing, and knot and wear are not. You might want to wear a knot, but you would look pretty silly!
  6. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    clown, circus, theatre, match, goalkeeper
    clown, goalkeeper is the correct answer because the other three words are all forms of entertainment we might go to, and clown and goalkeeper are people we might see there
  7. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    floppy, smelly, skinny, feet, legs
    feet, legs is the correct answer because the other three words are all adjectives, and feet and legs are parts of the body. It's just a pity smelly feet and floppy legs can't be the answer! It's much funnier
  8. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    apple, yellow, blue, green, pear
    apple, pear is the correct answer because the other three words are all colours, and apple and pear are fruits. It would have been more tricky if we had included 'orange' or 'lime' or 'lemon' because they are all colours and fruits!
  9. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    DVD, science fiction, history, book, comedy
    DVD, book is the correct answer because the other three words are all types of movie or types of book, and DVD and book are not
  10. Choose the two words that do not belong in this group of five words:
    January, March, June, July, October
